Vegas For Families: Valley of Fire

Vegas for families: Valley of Fire 
We ventured off to Valley of Fire this trip so the kids could experience it. Remember to go early if you’re like us and go in the summer!  Valley of Fire is about an hour drive with one gas station stop/casino/store. Stop there if you need gas because you won’t have another chance for gas in the valley. You should also stop there because it’s unique, gifts, bathroom, and it’s interesting. 
All of the adults had been before (a first for the kids), but this is a place you can visit numerous times and it is still amazing! There are so many things to see and different trails.  Best parts: I watched the kids climb around ( no pics of climbs because I’m mom-spotting from below every time). We found many lizards because it is still early and the kids hunted for snakes although we have a variety of feelings about finding a snake! We saw the petroglyphs again which is awesome too and elephant rock of course!  For pictures

Let’s just get any concerns or preconceived ideas about this first. I admit, I was a little concerned about going to Adventuredome. Is it clean? Is it old and showing it’s age and is it worth it to go there? Well, I was pleasantly surprised by this area for the kids. It’s clean, well organized, and so much fun! This is cheaper than going to our local fair or another park and my kids has a great time. My kids are 10 and 15. There were rides for them to do together and separately.

We walked to Adventuredome from The Signature which most people won’t want to do in July. If you do, be prepared to stop along the way and take pictures. It’s a wonderful joy watching the kids taking in all thats around them: people, buildings, fancy cars, etc. We even saw a TV show being filmed and got to randomly “walk through”. How cool!

Not interested in walking? There’s a bus stop right at Circus Circus curb and there’s parking.

We arrived at 10:30 and it was not crowded at all. It opens at 10. My advice is to get there at 10 or close because by 11 is was definitely getting crowded. By 2, it was packed!

There are coupons now at DQ for $5 off and there was someone on the street by NYNY handing out coupons too. So for unlimited rides for two we spent  under $60. Also, the unlimited wrist band is good for all day so you can come and go until midnight. Also, parents don’t have to pay to be in there if just watching and supervising.

 Rides: one open roller coaster and lots of rides for little kids and big kids. A lot of arcade games and fair-type games. You can pay $7 to get into the ultimate arcade and play endless games. My kids loves that.

There are some things not included with the ride fee like mini golf. You can also pay for each ride individually but at $6 a ride if you’re going to ride more than 5 times get the unlimited wrist band.
